`Living Legend'

Mon Oct 31, 2011 2:12 pm

Thought you might like to see these - two US posters for the Ginger Alden/Earl Owensby film `Living Legend' that I added to my poster collection.
Now I wonder who `Eli' was supposed to resemble!
I'm pretty sure Roy Orbison did the soundtrack, or parts of it, but that isn't mentioned on the posters.

It says on the poster "Original sound track by Roy Orbison".

Has anyone here actually seen this film? I was under the impression it never got past the concept stage,

Elvisjock -
North Carolina producer/actor/director Earl Owensby's films were marketed/distributed primarily to the southern drive-in circuit.

Well I missed that, big print and all! :oops:
I recall the film was pretty bad - the posters aren't much better either but they add to my collection.

Did Jo Alden get a credit as "Technical Advisor?" :)

It's OK for a grade b drive in type of film. Ginger looks pretty in it. Earl is the hairest guy I ever saw though. Gave me nightmare's for weeks!

Seeing Ginger gave me sleepless nights for weeks. :smt005
No wonder Elvis was crazy about her. What a goodlooking woman. Prettier than Ann-Margret and Priscilla together. :wink:
